Awesome Dog

Description:

Students will use descriptive language in order to create a picture in the reader's mind.

Students will select an object to describe so that someone reading their description would be able to visualize it clearly.

Students will be able to understand how important details are to the writer's craft.  If a writer has something particular in mind that they want to convey, but instead describe people or places or things in a vague fashion, the writer's message is lost and won't support effective visualization.
